Thank You Teachers.
In celebration of World Teachers’ Day on 29 October, we’re recognising teachers for their continuous work throughout the
year, both online and in the classroom.
Throughout 2020 and 2021 our teachers at Bingara Central School were at the forefront of educational delivery during learning from home and once again this year have been at the heart of education recovery, as students returned back into the classroom.
As the Principal of our school, I know that I am proud to have the calibre of staff that
deliver a full curriculum from the early years of learning all the way through to our HSC graduates.
Today, please join me in showing your appreciation for the teachers’ ongoing leadership in supporting our
students and the wider community.
Thank you, Teachers, we appreciate you!

Let’s Talk About Sleep…
Did you know that on average, Australian adolescents are getting 3 hours less sleep per night than they require? It is necessary for teens to get 8-10 hours of sleep per night for the healthy development of the brain and body. Children need even more than this, requiring 9-11 hours of sleep for optimal functioning, growth, and learning.
Lack of sleep has significant impacts, such as changes to mood and an individual’s ability to think, learn, react, regulate their emotions and make safe, sensible decisions.
So, let’s begin to recognise the signs of sleeping well compared to the indicators of sleep deprivation.
If you’re sleeping well:
• You fall asleep within 20 minutes of lying down.
• You don’t usually wake up more than twice a night (which you may not even remember).
• You don’t feel tired during the day.
• You’re able to stay focused during the day.
• You have enough energy throughout the day.
Signs that you’re not getting enough sleep:
• You don’t feel refreshed when you wake up in the morning.
• You find it difficult to concentrate during the day.
• You feel fatigued or drowsy throughout the day.
• You forget things easily.
• You often feel grumpy or moody.
Next week, we’ll look at tips to get a good night’s sleep. Until then, start taking note of
how many hours of sleep your children and adolescents are getting each night. Also think
about what factors might be influencing the amount of sleep they get, and whether
they’re showing any signs of sleep deprivation. If you’re concerned about your child or
adolescent’s sleep, it may be helpful to speak with your GP.
Kindergarten School News
Today was a spooky kind of day in transition! We were dressed up in our spookiest costumes, listened to some Halloween stories and learnt some monster moves to dance with.
We decorated our own trick or treat bags and went trick or treating in Miss Schmidt’s
room. Remember there is no transition next week. We will see you all the following
week for our first half day!
